AUBURN, Ala. (WSFA) -- If you have been looking for updates from the Auburn Tigers football Twitter account, you’re out of luck.

The team’s official account, www.twitter.com/auburnfootball, has been sidelined with an official Twitter suspension.

Twitter has not given a reason for the suspension, but Auburn doesn’t appear to be alone on the bench. Several collegiate and professional sports team are also facing holds on their accounts.

Among them, the Houston Rockets. A spokesman for the Rockets said he believes the team’s account was suspended for using copyrighted music in previous posts.

It is likely, but unclear if that is what happened in Auburn’s case. Other sports teams affected in recent days by Twitter suspensions include Rutgers, Iowa and Iowa State,

The Alabama Crimson Tide’s football account, though currently active, was suspended twice in 2018 for a similar issue.

It’s unclear when the suspensions will be lifted.
